Critical review of procurement method research in construction
Egbu, C (2015). Critical review of procurement method research in construction. Procedia Economics and Finance. 21, pp. 6-13.
One of the features of the construction industry over the last three decades or so, has been the use of various procurement methods for projects such as management contracting, project management and design and build. With the growth in the use of these methods, a number of researchers have investigated the criteria for their selection and their performance in terms of time, cost and quality. However, there is a lack of reporting on the association between procurement methods and the advanced related issues such as innovation and technology, supply chain, lean construction, buildability, sustainability and value management. Through selected papers from well-known academic journals in construction management, detailed coverage of these issues is systematically reviewed with the aim to investigate the state of the art and trends in procurement research. The outcome of this paper may provide a platform for both researchers and industrial practitioners to appreciate the latest developments and trends in procurement method research.
